MACON, Ga. – The start time of FPD football’s 2015 season opener has been pushed back 30 minutes and is now slated for a 7 p.m. kickoff against Howard High School at Mercer University’s Five Star Stadium on Thursday night, August 27.

Pre-sale tickets are still available and are $5 each. Tickets will be available in each office on campus as well as the Viking Store until Thursday at 1 p.m.
